Washington, Mar 12 : Avril Lavigne has criticized young Hollywood starlets for deliberately courting the tabloid press.
The 'Sk8er Boi' star is disgusted by Hollywood starlets who try their level best to grab the attention of the paparazzi tip which includes - hanging around in areas where they know they'll be spotted by photographers.
"I think a lot of the Hollywood girls, I won't get into names, are obsessed with the paparazzi," Contactmusic quoted her, as saying.
"They call them or go to the Ivy (restaurant) so they'll be seen and followed for the rest of the day.
"I won't go shopping on Robertson Boulevard in LA, because it's so cheesy. I would feel lame. It's embarrassing," she added.
